IW: Rafa Faces Third Qualifier

3/15/2011Rafaholics ™

Rafa Nadal defeated Ryan Sweeting tonight in straight convincing sets 6-3, 6-1, I thought Rafa played very focused & he seemed to be getting into his rhythm from being off from tennis over a month after his injury at the Australian Open.

“I didn't play really impressive, but I played solid,” said Nadal, who has conceded just 11 points on serve through his first two matches. “I didn't have big mistakes. I think today the more positive thing is I finished much better than the beginning of the match. 
“In general, I’m happy with the serve, happy with the backhand. Forehand is always my best shot, and I need to be aggressive to have good chances to be in the right position to have a good tournament.”
Rafa faces Somdev Devvarman next, Rafa has never played him before.
